Abstract/Summary

Disparity of men and women in the society has always been a concern of the Philippines. This was the reason why the country implemented different laws to improve gender equality and rules for the protection and welfare of women. However, there are still existing laws, such as the revised Penal Code, which depicts gender inequality despite of the laws, constitutional provisions, and international commitments of the Philippines that provide for equalization of men and women in the country.

To abolish this gender inequality, an amendment on the provisions, namely articles 333 and 334 of the Revised Penal Code should be executed. Although there have been a lot of bills filed in the Congress for the revision of the provision above mentioned, there are still no changes done. Thus, the Revised Penal Code still violates the 1987 Constitution, which is the basis for all the rules made in the country. This proposal aims to harmonize the said laws to obtain gender in the Philippines.
